I think that we (as a community) have decided that parcel data is not useful
to us. Parcel boundaries are especially not useful. Parcel addresses,
however, are another story. I'd be happy to see addressing data imported as
points or applied to parcel buildings if those are available.

Please show us this tool. Beyond seeing the cool technology behind it, we
should make sure that it's doing "the right thing". How do you plan on
uploading these changes? What happens when an upload fails midway? Do you
reupload the whole changeset (thus duplicating data)? What are "collisions"
that you are detecting?

Who is "us"? Is ESRI getting into the business of loading data into OSM?
